This tour was very good, informative and enjoyable. Our guide was great, she knew her stuff and was very friendly. Visiting the museum and cemetery were quite moving considering the awful things that happened to so many service people. It was important to better understand this part of Australia's history. The train trip was a highlight and fun.

The tour was a long day, in total 13 hours! This was mainly for pick up from various hotels then dropped off at the main coach on the outskirts of Bangkok, then the same repeated [in reverse], coming back.
We also ,after seeing the Bridge,made a long detour north, supposedly for the included Lunch,but in fact it was to pick up tourists as well, who had stayed in the Jungle overnight and dropped off by a previous coach party!
This in total made the day long and tiring and instead of the 10 Hours stated, it took 13 Hours!
Putting this aside, seeing the Bridge,Cemetery,Train Ride and Boat Ride was a Great Experience and we wouldn't have missed it for the world!
That's why we have given this Tour 4 Stars!

A good trip but the day was unnecessarily long. The train trip is not essential; we waited almost an hour for the train to arrive. The visit to the cemetery, museum and bridge was good. Lunch was simple and sufficient. Our guide was knowledgeable.

The trip was great, lots to see in a short period of time. On the train you need to be on the right hand side to see anything more than rocks when you cross a bridge. The guide told us this AFTER half us us were on the left hand side and the train got full. He got very rude and defensive after this.

A fantastic experience, quite moving at times when visiting the war graves and supported by a knowledable tour guide. The tail boat ride was exhilirating and the train ride remarkable, Lunch was good and the minibus ride from Bangkok was terrifying.

It was very moving, my father was a POW who worked on this railroad, so to see and experience it was amazing.
Tour was fine, only comment would be that rather than hit everyone up for an extra 100 Baht so we can sit on the train, add it to the cost of the tour.

Wonderful day out with the family. Our guide was very knowledgeable and polite. We were picked up early and only had 2 other people with us. The lunch provided was great and the atmosphere very peaceful. Crossing the bridge and seeing the countryside by train was a very relaxing way to go.
